Police investigating Southwest Portland burglaries

Police are investigating several weekend burglaries in the 7400 block of Southwest Virginia Avenue.

A witness saw a man in the area knocking on doors that may or may not be a suspect. He is described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, 6 feet tall, 220 pounds, with brown hair and wearing dark-colored clothing.

According to police, Central Precinct officers responded to several reports of residential burglaries that occurred in the same block on the weekend of Dec. 13 and 14. Six separate residences reported burglaries where entry was forced and personal items of value were taken from the homes.

Anyone with information about these burglaries should contact Burglary detectives by email, burglary@portlandoregon.gov.
